Sun breath helps move from fight-or-flight to rest-and-renew state, soothing and preparing us for restful sleep. Five pointed star pose opens up the chest, improving circulation and breathing. Butterfly pose improves flexibility in the hip area, which carries stress. Mountain pose opens up the connective tissue of the side body facilitating ease in breathing.

Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

Yoga is one of the best ways to deal with most of the health problems that you are facing. Moreover, it also helps parents to soothe their kids to sleep. Usually, kids always have a good sleep but the transition from wakefulness to sleep is what creates the problem. Anyway, it is a fact that Yoga helps kid sleep better along with the improved aforementioned transition. Here are some of the poses that can help your kids get a better sleep.

Yoga poses that enhances your kid’s quality of sleep

Sun breath – Sun breath is nothing but a long deep breath. Lengthening the breath moves us from fight-or-flight to rest-and-renew state, soothing and preparing us for restful sleep. Inhale with your arms over your head and exhale your arms back down.

Five-Pointed Star Pose – This pose lengthens and opens the body including the chest, improving circulation and breathing for more restful sleep. Press down through your feet. Reach your arms wide.

Side bending Mountain Pose – This pose opens the connective tissue of the side body facilitating ease in breathing. Start with inhaling and lengthening your spine. Exhale and bend to one side. Inhale to come up and exhale to the other side.

Bird Pose – Balancing poses require concentration, which is actually restful for the mind. Focus on one point. Lift your foot behind you and balance. Then switch feet.

Ladybug Pose – This pose opens the hip flexors for a more comfortable night’s rest. To do this, bend your knees, roll your shoulders back, and press your palms together.

Butterfly Pose – Butterfly pose is known for improving the flexibility in the hip area. According to the Ayurveda, hip is where humans carry stress, Therefore, butterfly pose can relieve your child’s stress and offer a restful night’s sleep. To do this, sit on the ground, press the soles of your feet together, and roll your shoulders back.
